Greg Kurz - March 19, 2014, 4:02 p.m.
The ppc_rtas() syscall allows userspace to interact directly with RTAS.
For the moment, it assumes every thing is big endian and returns either
EINVAL or EFAULT when called in a little endian environment.

As suggested by Benjamin, to avoid bugs when userspace wants to pass
a non 32 bit value to RTAS, it is far better to stick with a simple
rationale: ppc_rtas() should be called with a big endian rtas_args
structure.

With this patch, it is now up to userspace to forge big endian arguments,
as expected by RTAS.

Ben,

The chunk with the -1 return code check may look a bit pedantic. Please feel
free to kill it. :)

Cheers.
